Charity Miles

Charity Miles is a great way to get active along with helping certain charities.  Charity Miles is available in the App Store and Google Play Store for FREE.  Simply download the app, pick a charity, and start biking, running, or walking.  As you exercise, the Charity Miles app will track the distance and money you earn.  When you are finished, Charity Miles will send a note confirming your good work.  “It’s as easy as this: get moving.”  When you use this app bikers can earn 10¢ a mile and runners/walkers earn 25¢ a mile.  When I think about integrating this into the classroom, I think about Physical Education teachers first.  Also, an elementary classroom could begin the day with a walk around the school.  This gets the body and mind ready to learn along with a quick math lesson, as students can estimate how much money the class will earn by the end of the year according to 10¢ or 25¢ a mile ratio.  The video embedded below will give you more information on Charity Miles.
